The eastern half (BM Peninsula side) of Tarcoola Reach will be closed on the weekend after next for the ACT Wakeboarding Carnival. The closure is between 0730 and 1800 hours each day. From past experience, rowing boats need to be very careful anywhere near this area as the wake boats do not stay contained in this area and the wakes definitely don't. Small boats and inexperienced rowers should keep right away. An accompanying safety (coach) boat is recommended. All traffic needs to pass as close to Weston Park as possible and you will need to negotiate with others using this narrow (and rough) channel to be as safe as possible. ACT Representatives for Interstate Masters Events - Call for nominations ACTRA is calling for nominations for the women's and men's eights and quads to represent the ACT in the interstate masters races.
